The honeycomb structure is the basic structure of a beehive, which is composed of a hexagonal single cell, the mouth of the cell is all facing down or to one side, and is arranged symmetrically back-to-back. This structure has excellent geometrical and mechanical properties. Cellular Structure is the best topological Structure for covering a two-dimensional plane. Because of its stable energy absorption and light structure, the honeycomb material has been widely used in aerospace, automobile and national defense equipment, and material science, etc. There is a novel aviation infrastructure system by a multipurpose and multilayer ecological & energized module (EEM) system, which is aiming to create the high safety & security, graceful and comfortable air travel environment, high-quality air, zero energy, zero-water-consumption, and zero-carbon with a 100% greening rate, etc., in which a totally-enclosed EEM system is used as the airport pavement plate for the airport pavement system, in which the underlying support system is the divisional overall load-bearing EEM structures with an invisible EEM cellular system. The invisible EEM cellular system is pitted with cell-like cavities, or as a honeycomb. The enclosed EEM system is also a reliable protective layer for concrete roads. The reliable EEM protection increases the service life of the concrete roads as well. As a bearing layer, however, the total weight and impact force can be in hundreds of tons or even thousands of tons during takeoffs and landings of super-heavy aircraft. This paper discusses the most appropriate structural features, material selection, and many-body layout in this case. Further, a wider selection of materials and suitable structures will be also explored.
